Congratulations to Care Assistant Andreea, Night Care Assistant Virgil, and Kitchen Assistant Wandee who have each received our ACE award for Achieving Customer Excellence, recognising outstanding care home staff who are committed to the delivery of high quality services and personalised care.
The Sussex Housing & Care ACE awards celebrate excellence in the quality of care we provide, by recognising individuals that go the extra mile to make a difference to the lives of our residents.
“We are extremely proud of our staff family at Sussex Housing & Care”, says Amanda Hodge, Director of Housing & Care. “Every day in our homes and schemes across Sussex we have seen examples of teams that have gone above and beyond to keep our residents safe, often putting themselves before their own families. We are very lucky to have such a supportive and devoted group of people and the ACE awards are an important opportunity to celebrate the positive work going on in our homes. Our teams should be proud of the difference they have made to people’s lives.”
Team members received votes from residents and colleagues alike. It was clear how much residents and their families appreciate the efforts of staff to keep their loved ones safe and how much staff have supported one another throughout the past year.
